Ahhhh……… After a pondering for a long, long time, I finally made a card for the latest Color Throwdown Challenge. It, for some reason, was a real toughie for me. But, when the inspiration finally hit… everything fell in to place. The colors you needed to use this week were Kraft, Dark Brown, Olive Green and Dark Yellow.
So my inspiration came from one of my favorite non-craft items… Paint Chips! Yup, my candy corn is a big ‘ol paint chip from Behr Paint. I use these a lot because they’re so wide. All of the cardstock is from Prism, and the stamps (inked with Staz-On) are from Cosmo Cricket. I also used Walnut Stain ink from Ranger and Amber Clay ink from Color Box.
The paint chip has a bit of a sheen, so regular ink doesn’t really stick which is why I used the Staz-On. I am really happy that I got this card done. I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t get to participate this week because my ideas just weren’t working out. But I must say, I am quite happy with the end result. It’s a “cute” Halloween card, which isn’t something I normally do. So it’s great that not only did I complete the challenge, but I made something a little out of my comfort zone too!
